A Stockton sailor in the Arabian Gulf

The U.S. Navy sends a photo of a Stockton sailor serving aboard the mighty USS Nimitz in the Arabian Gulf:

“U.S. Navy Aviation Ordnanceman 3rd Class Tanisha Stewart, from Stockton, Calif., prepares to work on ordnance aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68), July 31, 2017, in the Arabian Gulf.

“Nimitz is deployed in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. While in this region, the ship and strike group are conducting maritime security operations to reassure allies and partners, preserve freedom of navigation, and maintain the free flow of commerce.”

The Nimitz is the largest aircraft carrier in the world. Operation Inherent Resolve is the coalition battle against ISIS.

I’m trying for an interview with Stewart. Ought to be interesting.
